For a while, some of the links below did not work and I could not get information back from Howden regarding how to get a copy of the handbook since my contacts there had moved on. But on a lark, I did a search today and discovered that Howden is now making the 9th edition available electronically at no cost.
Just submit this form and you should get an e-mail with a download link. But if you are old and sentimental about books like I am you can still find used copies of it and earlier editions out there, as I mention in the blog post. Prices seem to vary all over the place. Since the electronic version I illustrated in the post is the 9th edition, I suspect the version you will get by following the link will be very similar if not identical.
I submitted the form myself and will update this note if I notice any major differences. Incidentally, folks my age and older may know this book as the Buffalo Fan Engineering Manual. If you look at the copyright page, it shows Howden Buffalo as the publisher. The copy in the picture is the 9th edition, published in However, the book has its roots in work by Dr.
Willis Carrier, and was first published in I bring all of this up because I recently discovered that Howden has made it much easier to obtain a copy of the book.
Specifically, if you follow the links on their web site, or simply click on this link , you will be take to an Amazon.
The only used copy offered on Amazon. But, I suspect you can find copies for less by shopping around a bit on the internet or used book stores. Since the principles behind Newtonian physics have not changed much since , I suspect the used edition represents a good value for someone on a budget.
Having said that, read on as there are some advantages to getting the latest edition. This alone may be worth the price of obtaining the latest copy for a number of reasons I discussed in a previous post , including portability, searchability, physical storage space and weight especially when traveling , and sustainability. But, the electronic version of the Fan Engineering Handbook complements all of these features by including interactive content. Clicking on the hyperlink for the chapter takes you to a bookmarked summary of the chapter content, from which you can jump to the topic of interest.
For instance, in the actual handbook, clicking on the equation hyperlinks shown in blue above will take you to those equations, which are in a different chapter. But better still, the manual includes spreadsheets pertinent to the various topics discussed. This is a spreadsheet that assesses flow rate based field data from a pitot tube traverse.
Note that it is set up for both IP U. If you wonder exactly how to use it, you just page down a bit. If you are wondering exactly how the calculations are done, you can simply highlight a cell, and view the formula, just like you can in any other Excel spreadsheet.
And, truth be told, I really appreciate having both the electronic and paper copy. Obviously, the electronic copy is handy for my field work and teaching. But for me, there is some sentimental attachment associated with the paper copy; its like having a bit of a tangible connection with one of the founders of our industry. As you probably have noted, this is not a free resource, like many of the ones I list in the reading and resources list I posted previously.
And, there is some good news if you are a student. To see if you qualify, simply send an e-mail to thehub howdenbuffalo. So, many thanks to Howden North America for making this resource available and for making it easier for students to obtain a copy of the latest and greatest information on fan engineering from the pens of leaders in the industry. Hey David, I have been looking for a copy of this book for a while and I am struggling. Can you help steer me towards where I can find a digital copy for sale.
I have actually tried to contact Howden a number of times since you sent this and with no luck. Its such a classic that it has to be out there, but the contacts I had have moved on.
As I type this, I realize there is one more person I should try so stay tuned. I may figure this out yet. Meanwhile, the only way I know of to get a copy is to watch for used copies on line or in book fairs.
